Letter – Thomas Wentworth Beaumont to Diana Beaumont – 26 Oct 1825

Clarendon Hotel Oct 26 My dear Mother, I have received this morning the enclosed, and tho’ the request is <very complicated> from Hexham, I do not see anything objectionable in it. The consideration of promoting idleness I should not think worthy of attention, for it is always better that an Open & ostensible mode of employing idle & leisure hours to <have ……> than the secret means which are always more prejudicial to the fortune & character of

Letter – Benjamin Johnson to Thomas Wentworth Beaumont – 1 Dec 1825

Mr B. (undated) I have seen the plan of the intended railroad in the south side of the river the original line on the north side being entirely abandoned. They wish to pass through the Stockfd Hall farm and come along the bank in front of the hall on the opposite side of the river. If this is permitted they would cut down nearly the whole of the wood in front and lay open <....> above the turnpike road but their rail road also. As they by a little extra cutting keep on the south side

Portman Square Decr. 17 1825 My dear Mrs. Wentworth From our very long acquaintance & friendly intimacy I cannot allow another day to pass without assuring you how truly I feel the distress that Mr. Wentworth & you must now experience: On my arrival in London on Saturday evening I received the alarming account, & soon after a gentleman from a banking house in the city arrived to give me further particulars which gave me very great concern, I sent off directly for

Mr B. Jan 11th 1826 Lord Ravensworth has not yet let Bradley and I fear it will rest in your hands another year. In this case your Brother possibly might prefer going there at Mayday and superintending the painting and papering of Bywell himself.

Letter – Benjamin Johnson to Thomas Wentworth Beaumont – 17 Jan 1826

Letter – Benjamin Johnson to Thomas Wentworth Beaumont – 19 Jan 1826

Mr B. Jan 19th 1826 As the Election must take place in a very short time, and you will have to furnish the house at Bywell I should recommend you to defer the building of a house for me for the present. If you would allow me to remove my family at Mayday to near to a town where I could get my children to a good day school it would be a great advantage to them as well as myself, as educating such a number at a boarding school with me is out of the question … the school at Hexham has been cl

Letter – Henry Liddell to Diana Beaumont – 2 Feb 1826

My Dear Mrs Beaumont, In consequence of the sudden death of our late excellent Representative Mr. Brandling, I am induced to offer myself for the vacant seat to the notice of the County. —Lord Howick has also started, and, as it is hardly to be believed that this County will return a second Whig Member, it does appear to me that my return at present would be the most likely means of securing Mr. Wentworth Beaumont a tranquil return at the ensuing General Election. May I be permitted to

Letter – Henry Liddell to Diana Beaumont – 11 Feb 1826

February 11th, Newcastle My Dear Madam, In answer to your letter, only received this day, I must beg it to be distinctly understood that I rest my claims to the vacant Representation solely upon the ground of coming forward on the Tory interest of the County, and that I cannot consent to implicate myself in any degree with any other candidate whatever. The sentence in my last letter, alluding to Mr. Wentworth Beaumont, was simply given as a matter of opinion, without the smallest

Diary – James Losh – 20 Feb 1826

Mr. Beaumont arrived this evening (at Alnwick) and passed two hours at my lodgings (I fear to little purpose) in consultation as to his line of conduct. Mr Bell’s Law Committee also met at my lodgings and staid with me until past 11, receiving my directions as to the legal objections to be taken tomorrow.

Letter – James Losh to Charles Grey – 25 Feb 1826

Feb'y 25, 1826 I cannot deny myself the satisfaction of telling you how much we were all pleased with Lord Howick's address to the Freeholders on Tuesday. And I have no hesitation in saying that it was in matter and manner all that his best friends cou'd have wished. He probably was not heard at a great distance, but his voice appeared to me so clear and distinct that with a very little practice he may without difficulty address a numerous Assembly in the op

Diary – James Losh – 15 Mar 1826

There seem now to be 4 candidates all likely to stand a poll at the next general election (for Northumberland). Ld. Howick, Mr. Beaumont, Mr. Liddell and Mr. Bell.

Diary – James Losh – 16 Mar 1826

I had a long and somewhat curious interview with Mr. Liddell who called upon me professedly to talk about the Catholic question, but perhaps with the further view of making out my opinion upon other points also, but not forgetting my being the counsel and friend of Mr. Beaumont. He declared strongly his wish for Catholic Emancipation and professed that he was friendly to civil and religious liberty in general. He admitted, however, to me that he considered Mr. Canning as his leader and guide
